5 Overview of Changes Regulations and policies issued and implemented by HUD, EPA, CPSC and NPS CDC elevated blood lead level guidance Knowledge gained from field and laboratory experience, and technology advances Advice given by HUD and others to housing owners, funders, and lead professionals 5

6 Chap. 1: Introduction Updated discussion and references on: background on childhood lead poisoning, sources of lead, evolution of lead poisoning prevention CDC emphasis on primary prevention, and discussion of CDC response to ACCLPP report Qualifications for physicians administering chelation therapy 6

7 Chap. 2: Where to Go for Help — Qualifications and Roles Updated organizational names, addresses, website links HUD/OHHLHC, and EPA, are public health agencies with respect to childhood lead poisoning Roles of housing owners, certified persons, certified firms, accrediting bodies Importance of good reports 7

8 Chap. 3: Before You Begin — Planning To Control Lead Hazards EPA Abatement Rule and Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) Rule, e.g., certified firms, certified supervisors, certified renovators HUD Lead Safe Housing Rule (LSHR) aspects, e.g., required evaluation and control activities for federally-owned and -assisted housing High-level summary of relationship between the RRP Rule and LSHR (detailed summary in regulatory Appendix 6) 8

9 Chap. 3 (cont.) EPA residential waste disposal: Household waste policy clarification (2000) Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) rule update (2003) codified this policy See chapter 10 for specifics Project completion: Discussion of cleaning verification and clearance 9

10 Chap. 4: Lead-Based Paint and Housing Renovation Updates descriptions of OSHA, EPA and HUD rules and roles Notes that LBPH and LBP definitions are under collaborative review by EPA and HUD Invokes PRE Rule Updates prohibited methods under EPA rules and LSHR 10

11 Chap. 5: Risk Assessment and Reevaluation Invokes EPA lead training and certification (402) rule, State / Tribal certification program authorizations, and LSHR Distinguishes risk assessment (RA) from environmental investigation Discusses composite sampling, but gives pragmatic reasons for not encouraging it Discusses random sampling of types of common areas 11

12 Chap. 5 (cont.) ASTM voluntary consensus standards for dust- lead and soil-lead sampling and analysis Revised model questionnaires and field sampling forms Mobile laboratories re NLLAP in EPA and State/Tribal certification programs Model RA report executive summary format RA report example (in Appendix 8.1) 12

13 Chap. 6: Ongoing Lead-Safe Maintenance Discusses relationship among ongoing maintenance, interim controls, and renovation Invokes PRE, RRP, LSHR Updated forms 13

14 Chap. 7: Lead-Based Paint Inspection Invokes EPA certification program, and State / Tribal certification program authorizations Notes that there are other analyses besides X-ray fluorescence (XRF) and the common lab methods (AAS, ICP-AES, ASV) that may be used by a laboratory with NLLAP recognition Emphasizes that results and LBP inspection / RA reports using an XRF without a current Performance Characteristic Sheet are invalid 14

15 Chap. 7 (cont.) Invokes ASTM voluntary consensus standards for sampling and analysis Updates recommended report summary paragraphs on disclosing where LBP was, and was not, identified As noted previously, LBP definition under collaborative review by EPA and HUD 15

16 Chap. 7 (cont.) Recommends that owners of LBP-free leasing properties retain reports for the life of the building, to prove easily that lease transactions are exempt from the Lead Disclosure Rule Recommends that other owners retain the reports as well Discusses mobile laboratories re NLLAP in EPA and State/Tribal certification programs 16

17 Chap. 7 (cont.) Discusses testing of non-paint surfaces, e.g., unpainted ceramic tile and porcelain bathtubs: Surfaces are not LBP, and not covered by the Lead Disclosure Rule Sometimes tested before renovation if they will be broken or crushed, re worker protection and clearance issues 17

18 Chap. 8: Resident Protection and Worksite Preparation Invokes PRE and RRP Rules Expands discussion of OSHA rules Step-by-step worksite preparation description Strongly discourages high-dust jobs 18

19 Chap. 9: Worker Protection Considerably shortened, since OSHA’s guidance for its Lead in Construction standard has been issued (links are provided) Updated protective clothing and equipment (e.g., respiratory protection standard) info Discusses OSHA hazcom rule revision (3/26/2012) with global harmonization (e.g., revised lead warning sign and lead- contaminated clothing container label) 19

20 Chap. 10: Housing Waste Reflects EPA waste rules and guidance, esp.: Policy clarification (2000) exempting most residential LBP waste generated by contractors as well as residents, but not concentrated lead waste (e.g., paint strippings, lead paint chips) Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) rule update (2003) codified this policy 20

21 Chap. 11: Interim Controls Reflects PRE, RRP and LSHR Provides updated step-by-step procedural guidance Reiterates HUD policy that, “Clearance is highly recommended … even when not required by regulation” of HUD or EPA, while noting the role and benefits of those regulations 21

22 Chap. 12: Abatement Reflects EPA 402 abatement rule and HUD LSHR Notes, re metal components, that factory applied primers in sound condition need not be abated or removed in an abatement project 22

23 Chap. 13: Encapsulation Notes that encapsulation: with a less-than-20 yr expected life, or without a 20 yr-or-longer encapsulation maintenance plan, is RRP / interim control, not abatement Notes that EPA volatile organic compounds emissions rule for architectural coatings may cover encapsulation; the determination is product-, method- and site-specific 23

24 Chap. 14: Cleaning Following Hazard Controls or Other Paint-Disturbing Work Updated to reflect methodology research results Discusses types of vacuums, use of TSP Discusses use of on-site preliminary dust testing (e.g., XRF, ASV) before clearance exam when achieving clearance known to be difficult (e.g., high dust-lead and paint-lead levels before work, surfaces not smooth & cleanable) 24

25 Chap. 15: Clearance Reflects EPA lead abatement regulations and HUD LSHR For certified dust sampling technicians: EPA RRP Rule allowing them to conduct optional clearance, and HUD LSHR allowing them to conduct clearance if exam approved and report signed by certified RA or LBPI, but not to randomly select testing units / locations 25

26 Chap. 15 (cont.) Use of voluntary consensus standard (ASTM) methods Composite sampling of dust not encouraged; procedures described for it if conducted Discusses use of on-site dust testing (e.g., XRF, ASV) for clearance exam by NLLAP-recognized mobile laboratory 26

27 Chap. 15 (cont.) Table of recommended minimum number and locations of dust samples for four clearance categories (interior with containment, without containment; worksite-only; exterior work) Updated discussion on option to determine if specified hazard control work was done Discussion and checklists for clearance report preparation 27

28 Chap. 16: Investigation and Treatment of Dwellings that House Children with Elevated Blood Lead Levels New summary of recommendations as a function of BLL New list of actions NOT recommended New description of assessment/ remediation CDC response to ACCLPP report Pending decisions on HUD rulemaking, retains EIBLL thresholds and approach, so HUD and state/local agencies have guidance 28

30 Chap. 18: Lead-Based Paint and Historic Preservation Updated re National Parks Service guidance Invokes RRP, LSHR, OSHA Cautions on chemical stripping re glue melting To protect housing’s historicity, recommends no: Caustic strippers that can raise wood grain (unless supervised by a trained specialist) Power sanding that can abrade wood surfaces Hot-tank dipping that may loosen glued joints 30
